Keeping count for ram japa
rbs100 posted a topic in Mantra Tantra VigyanaIf I want to do ram japa for 1 crore times, how keep the track of it? Because it is difficult to keep track more than ten thousand times using rudraksh. What are the benefits will the rama japa will give for 1 crore times? Is there any mantra which is shorter than rama and gives many benefits with shorter times?
Vishnupriya_108 posted a topic in Mantra Tantra VigyanaHari Om I have recently started doing a purascharana of the mantra Om Namo Narayanaya. I am doing it for spiritual progress to attain Darshan of Lord Narayana. Swami Sivananda (of Rishikesh) wrote a wonderful article on Japa yoga that inspired me to begin this sadhana. I am doing this under the guidance of Swami Sivananda's disciple in Rishikesh. Just wondering, is there anyone who is currently undertaking a purascharana of this or any other mantra? Just thought it would be nice to stay in touch via this forum and keep each other motivated. It will take me around 2 years to complete this (I work full time and do 11 malas a day) but feel it is well worth it. I already feel the mantra is making me a more positive and hopefully better person. I will probably need to do many purascharanas before I attain the Darshan I seek, but I feel glad I've made a start.

I need help with a Krishna mantra...
JDA posted a topic in The Hinduism ForumHello, this is my first post and I have a question. Can Sri Krishna's name be used alone as a mantra? (such as Sri Krishna, Sri Krishna, Sri Krishna, etc.) I chanted his name many times last night and experienced great energy, and strange as it is I woke up with a headache this morning. Could someone please explain this as well? Thankyou
